Chateau Latour

France > Bordeaux > Médoc > Pauillac

First planted with vines some time in the 14th century the estate now covers 78 hectares in the Pauillac appellation.

The wine is generally 75 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 25 per cent merlot with petit verdot and cabernet franc completing it. About 18,000 cases of the grand vin are produced annually, although this figure varies. Latour has rightfully earned the reputation for producing top quality in years of unhelpful weather. Regarded by many as the world's finest first growth, Latour has remarkable ageing properties. The 1899 vintage is still lauded as is the 1945 and 1964. Our selections will repay careful cellaring for years to come.
